Since 1946, the Gonzales family has grown the rare and fabulous California Blenheim apricots. Grown on our Hollister ranch, we continue to be the farmer, pruner, dryer, packer, and seller of the vanishing Blenheim apricot. We produce the best tasting apricots in the world all "Home Grown in the Flavor Zone"!
In addition to our incredible dried apricots, be sure to discover our variety of nuts (walnuts, pistachios, almonds) and other dried fruits (peaches, pears, prunes, and more). For those who believe less is more, we have dark and delicious unsulfured dried apricots. And don't forget our sweet and tart selection of apricot jams and syrups as well as our decadent chocolate covered fruits and nuts. Simply delicious! Everything here on the ranch is organically grown.
Simply Superior Slabs
The answer to the question "Which apricots are the sweetest?"
SLABS...ALWAYS SLABS....if you can find them.
Slabs have the highest sugar content of all the apricots because they're longer on the tree...picked when they're soft and overripe.
Ours are machine cut, paper-thin, and delicate...even though they're the most labor intensive to produce.
These cots are separated from the rest of the pack by their unique color and flat-ness.
Blenheim slabs are the ultimate #1 choice of apricot aficionados everywhere!
Low in sulphur, so eat them, or refrigerate them. 16 oz bags or in bulk.
We eliminated our Superior Slab item because all of these are truly Superior Slabs.
WoW! The Best Apricots!

These apricots are not like those found in the local specialty stores (not to be mean.) These are so are good I’m drooling as I write this. (I catch my husband sneaking into the pantry late at night to eat a few, that tells how delicious they are.) And the color is so beautiful, too.

Simply the best dried apricots you will find.
They always arrive in a neat little box and very promptly.
I would give them 6 stars if I could.

The best fried fruit, natural, tasty

Great intense apricot flavor, better than the dried apricots in the Brooklyn appetizer store I grew up with and better than the Trader Joe extra fancy Blenheim.
The current COVID-19 pandemic and stay at home led to discovering Apricot King and Simply Superior Slabs.
Christmas all year

These apricots are so special that they are now part of my Christmas presents for my clients. The response is always a big thank you and again they think I always know the best of everything

These Blenheim slabs are THE BEST dried apricots ever. So soft and sticky and wonderful. Reminds me of my childhood in Los Altos before it became Silicon Valley.
My Childhood Revisited!
Posted by Laurie on May 18th 2020
Growing up in Brooklyn NY there was an "appetizing" store on every corner. One of the thing that were sold back then were fresh California apricots. My mom budgeted her supermarket allowance to be able to afford this treat for herself, and if were were lucky, she would share.
Apricot King has brought me back decades to my favorite treat, which brings happy memories of childhood with it. These truly are the best apricots around. I haven't been able to find anything close to this in years. Well worth having them shipped across country, were they arrived to my door fresh, moist and oh so delicious!

I have never had such good apricots as these from ApricotKing. They are soft and flavorful and delicious! When I lived in California I could get them from my local independent neighborhood grocery. Now I live on the East Coast and order them on-line because I cannot find such delicious ones anywhere!
Hands-down the BEST APRICOTS EVER!

These are so tender and have the most flavor that I have ever had in an apricot. The perfumed sweet and tart taste simply cannot be beaten! I poached some in water and apricot syrup and gave to my mom for Mother's day- she's still raving about them.
It's worth it

We were surprised that this order of slabs cost more than the last order. Apparently these were the "superior" slabs. Yes, they are superior and worth the extra cost.
